Default 2013 Kia Cee’d

Making its world debut today at the Geneva motor show is the all-new Kia Cee’d. The car already manages to get good sales numbers around the globe with a record of 4,30,000 vehicles sold just in the Western Europe. In developing the new Cee’d, the engineers has their main focus on making it even more efficient, reducing the emissions and making the design a bit more global.
The dimensions

The new Cee’d is longer (+50mm) and sits even lower (-10mm) than its predecessor, making the profile even more sporty. The new Cee’d is tailor made for Europe and sits on an entirely new platform yet the 2,650mm wheelbase remains the same. The overall bodyshell is narrower (-10mm) and the front and rear track has been increased by 17mm and 32mm respectively.
Kia Cee’d's new engines

The new Cee’d gets enhanced powertrains with even better fuel economy and lower emissions without sacrificing engine response or power output. The engine options offered depend from place to place. In the Western Europe, there will be two petrol – 1.4 MPI and a 1.6 GDI producing 100 and 135 PS respectively – plus two diesels – a 1.4 WGT with an output of 90 PS and a 1.6 VGT will be offered in two states of tune (110 and 128 PS). Some of the lucky markets in Europe will get a 1.6 MPI petrol unit churning out 130 PS.

The most popular engine option will be the 1.6-liter variable geometry unit generating 128 PS and 260 Nm torque mated to a 6-speed manual or a brand new dual-clutch automatic transmission pushing the car to 100 kph in less than 11 seconds. The transmissions will depend on the engine option one chooses. The Cee’d also gets technologies like the start-stop, EcoDynamics – a sub-brand to optimize efficiency and lower emissions, an alternator management system and low-rolling resistance tyres to further enhance the fuel economy.

The new Cee’d gets hugely increased torsional rigidity with the new bodyshell (45% stiffer than the original model) and the improvements to the suspension improve the stability, handling and ride quality. Front passengers get 12mm more headroom and 21mm more legroom while rear passengers gain 5 mm of shoulder room. Use of higher quality cabin materials, better sound insulation, use of black single-tone and stone beige two-tone interior color scheme makes the insides a better and more comfortable place to spend time in. The boot gets a 12% increase in the capacity pushing it to 380-liters.

Driver assistance systems

Driving aids include Fixed cornering lamps and advanced HID headlamps, Parallel Park Assist (PPAS). A list of safety feature to ensure the safety of the driver and the passengers include ESP, ABS, BAS (Emergency Brake Assist System), HAC (hill climb assist), VSM (Vehicle Stability Management and ESS (Emergency Stop Signal) which flashes the brake lights when the driver makes an emergency stop. Door beams are 50% thicker improving the safety in side impact and gets 6 airbags as standard ensuring maximum safety.

Not sure how I feel about this. From what I recall this is the same car as the Forte, which I happen to like the look of, even though it needs a refresh. It's not that this new Cee'd looks bad, it just looks a bit confused.

I will always miss you


My brother loved his Cee'd and then his Pro Cee'd. He only got to drive the Pro for 1600 miles.

Boy, it was difficult getting them to take it back.
